Come Sit With Me On My Mourning Bench

I have recently written up my personal account of coping with grief in the family on my blog.  I hope it will be helpful to someone.

Good writing David. It would take more time than I was able to dedicate it at this hour, but I felt compelled to write, to reach out, to attempt to make a connection as we share the universal common ground of loss. I believe that we die a little each day. That the more detached we are, the less we will suffer. I have cried already the loss of things that I still have, because I know they are fleeting. They are meant to be so, and we are meant to get enriched by their passing experience. It's all so mysterious, so amazing. I perceive that you are a deep thinker. I am a deep thinker myself. I don't take pride in it, and much less shame, it's just a fact. It makes it hard to make friends, as chatter about stupid topics don't keep my interest, and most people's favorite subject seems to be to complain, and these days it's about government and the such. I can hardly suffer that useless noise. It's all drivel. Anyway. I'm getting off the topic of suffering and mourning perhaps. Forgive me. I would love to hear from you if you feel compelled to write. <br />
